The Chicago based hip-hop blog has been an integral part of the scene as an early champion of artists such as Chance the Rapper, Chief Keef, Mick Jenkins, Lil Durk and Vic Mensa. In 2013 founder Andrew Barber joined Red Bull Sound Select as a curator for the Midwest, helping to elevate the careers of up and coming acts. For its 10th Anniversary, Barber has invited some of Fake Shore Drive’s closest friends including DJ’s, Rappers and some unannounced guests.
